What do the BC Liberals do as the Official Opposition?
In the Legislature, BC Liberal MLAs are responsible for studying and debating all proposed new laws (called bills) and considering the views and concerns of British Columbians before deciding to support or reject a bill. It is also the job of the MLAs to examine the activities of Cabinet ministers and their ministries, to approve taxes, and to debate and vote on government funding requests. BC Liberal MLAs work hard, both inside and outside the Legislature, to serve their constituents and assist them with their needs.
What has Andrew done to help British Columbians during this pandemic?
Andrew and the BC Liberal team have been listening to British Columbians impacted by the pandemic through telephone townhalls and virtual meetings, engaging more than 100,000 members of the public so far. Based on this feedback, Andrew and the team have been putting forward policies to keep British Columbians safe and begin our economic comeback. You can read more about our plan here.
